The 2014 Honda Civic Coupe vs. the 2014 Scion tC
Mechanicstown drivers, are you looking for an affordable and sporty new car, but don’t know what to choose? Try the 2014 Honda Civic Coupe, available now at Middletown Honda. The 2014 Civic is an incredibly impressive small car that does a lot to put the competition to shame, being the first vehicle in its class to earn the IIHS’s Top Safety Pick+ as well as standing tall as one of the best-equipped entry-level cars on the road today.
Of course, there are plenty of competing vehicles out there. Let’s see how the 2014 Scion tC stands up to this modern classic.
Get More Behind the Wheel of a Civic
Did you know that Honda redefined what it means for a car to come with “standard features” in the 2013 model year? Those features are back for 2014, and they are putting vehicles like the tC to shame.
The Civic includes Honda’s innovative i-MID infotainment system with touchscreen and steering wheel-mounted controls, while the tC’s infotainment system will have you poking at the screen while you drive. Honda also includes a rearview camera system for safer parallel parking and backing up, but you won’t find one on the Scion.
Though you can find Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity on both vehicles, the Civic also supports SMS text messaging capabilities and Pandora internet radio.
Drivers Save in a Honda
We know you always want money to be the last thing on your mind when searching for a new car, but isn’t it great to hear that a vehicle like the Civic is not only a better choice than the Scion tC, but it costs less as well?
It’s true. The 2014 Civic Coupe LX with automatic transmission comes in at $18,990 (MSRP) while the Scion is $20,210, for a savings of over $1000!
The savings continue thanks to the 2014 Honda Civic’s fuel economy, with the same Coupe LX with automatic transmission netting an EPA-estimated 39 highway mpg* compared to the tC’s 31 highway mpg. Those are savings that will add up fast.
